I always felt that Turbo got a bad rap from a lot of metal fans.  Personally, I think it's a fun album to listen to.  Turbo itself has a great beat to it and the rest of the album is well-written and fit what exactly the band was trying to do - which is something different (gasp!).

Turbo is underrated,

you have to look and listen to the priest music individualy
because almost everytime they are doing something else trying out new stuff
but in my opinion everytime they succeed to rock
i've been following the music of priest since 1975 
and they never stop to amaze me

Turbo is an amazing song, and one of my Top 3 favourites off the album.. 
It is quite underrated, and it still kicks ass when played live during Priest concerts!

Turbo is definately underrated, when you look at some of the stuff that was coming out at that time Turbo stands up really well 22 years later. Must admit tho, Parental Guidence is ridiculous, especially coming from a bunch of guys in their mid to late 30s, as priest were at the time. All the other songs on the album are good.

I think the biggest reason is if you go from DOF to Turbo is is quite different but in a "lighter" less British style dark Heavy metal sense.

Reckless and Out in the Cold are worth th $15.00 alone!!!

Listen right now to Rock You All Around The World from PRIEST...Live!!! (not the studio Turbo album version) is fantastic!!!

Also in my opinion Priest never played Reckless in concert is because it brings back PAinfull memories.........they had a chance to put it on Top Gun and Managment (there they go AGAIN!!!!!!!!!) decidd it was not in their best interests to pull it from Turbo.  So we have Danger Zone Kenny Loggins instead (which actually is not that bad of a song really).

So i think Priest can't play it because it eats at them inside and brings back bad memories.

I feel Turbo was very under-rated --all those great songs were on there
Locked In--Out In The Cold just to name a few
I think the critics felt it wasn't as heavy as the previous albums but that's what I like about Priest --they change their sound & keep ya guessing what's going to next that it maes ya want to come back for more so to speak.
I enjoy listening to that cd--on a daily basis

I was listening to Turbo yesterday and I can't understand why it has so much criticism. It's not my favourite Priest album, but I think there are some bloody great songs on.

Turbo, Out In The Cold, rock You All Around  The World,  Reckless, Private Property etc. Parental Guidance isn't that good, but on the whole it's a very strong album.

My guess is it's because it's quite commercial and uses (horror) guitar synth. Maiden had much the same critisism when they use them (also to great affect on Somewhere In Time and Seventh Son). A lot of metal heads though using synths  was selling out.
In my opinion Turbo is a great album . I certainly prefer it to Ram It Down which was a much heavier album 

What doesn everyone else reckon to Turbo?
